Devotional – Luke 20:41-44

41 And He said to them, “How can they say that the Christ is the Son of David? 42 Now David himself said in the Book of Psalms:

‘The Lord said to my Lord,
“Sit at My right hand,
43 Till I make Your enemies Your footstool.” ’

44 Therefore David calls Him ‘Lord’; how is He then his Son?”

Luke 20:41-44

How can David call his descendant Lord?  Jesus asked this question of the Pharisees to try and make it abundantly obvious that the Messiah was both Son of God and Son of Man.  He clarified this distinction by quoting Psalm 110:1 where “YHWH said to my Lord” – the Messiah, Jesus Christ. 

The Pharisees completely missed the boat here, again.  So engulfed with their own image and self-importance the fact that their Messiah stood before them was completely beyond their understanding.
